Intel has revealed a range of new security solutions designed to protect the latest wave of new technologies.On Monday at the RSA security conference in San Francisco, the tech giant revealed two new cybersecurity solutions, Intel Threat Detection Technology (TDT) and Intel Security Essentials.The Intel Threat Detection Technology solution has been designed to protect at the silicon level. TDT functions and utilizes telemetry at the hardware level to improve the detection of cyberthreats and exploits not only for today's widely-used systems but also potentially next-generation technologies including the Internet of Things (IoT) and the blockchain.Intel says this technology should help the enterprise "detect new classes of threats" due to two main features. The first, dubbed Accelerated Memory Scanning, shifts the scanning process to detect memory-based attacks from the CPU to the GPU.This, in turn, enables improved scanning and reduces the burden on a machine's performance and power … [Read more...] about Intel debuts security solutions at the silicon level
Internet security essentials
As enterprises have fragmented into multi-site operations with increasingly-mobile employees who access on-premises and cloud-based resources via a mix of managed and personal devices, so the headaches for CIOs and CISOs have multiplied. How do you give users access to the applications and services they need to get work done, while also ensuring that network security is not compromised?An increasingly popular approach is the software-defined perimeter (SDP), which Gartner predicts is on track to be adopted by 60 percent of enterprises by 2021, replacing network VPNs. This space now has a new entrant, in the shape of Tel Aviv-based startup Meta Networks, which has emerged from stealth mode with $10m of seed funding from VC firms Vertex Ventures and BRM Group.Central to the SDP model is a military-style 'zero-trust' approach centred around device authentication, identity-based access, and dynamically-provisioned connectivity, with per-user policies defining the network resources that can … [Read more...] about Meta Networks launches secure, cloud-native NaaS platform

The more widely used it becomes, the more "bad guys" will try to hack in. This is the nature of the beast. As long as Google continues to stay on top of any security threats this should not be an issue for most people. posted on 27 Apr 2011, 10:17 5 4. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4888; Member since: 15 Apr 2011) When you are #1 this happens. Windows always had this problem. Google & other companies will develop counters for these malwares that spring up. It's just the bad guys with nothing better to do. Android is big & is getting bigger, thus the malware makers are going to target it. Like celljrod said "This is the nature of the beast." Some people have nothing better to do with their lives & the only thing they do is create malware so the innocent people get their lives disrupted for their sick twisted pleasure! … [Read more...] about Comments for : Android security issues soaring, warns Kaspersky’s CTO
Android and iOS represent the lion's share of the mobile operating system market, and while there's inherent risk with the use of any mobile device in the enterprise, Android presents a much bigger target for malware attacks and, in turn, corporate security issues.With the massive growth of Android-powered devices in businesses over the past couple of years, companies need a strategy to minimize any risk the platform may pose, according to industry research firm J. Gold Associates."The point is because Android is basically open source, anyone can look at what's in Android. You can't do that with iOS," said Jack Gold, principal analyst with J. Gold Associates. "If you're LG, for example, and you put out a phone with modification to the OS, and you didn't do a good job with it, there's a potential vulnerability. And, in this day and age, someone will find it."Even if a developer makes a small modification to an app running on Android, it can create a security hole, Gold said."Even if you … [Read more...] about Android vs iOS security: Which is better?
